LEE'S LIEUTENANTS: A Study in Command

by Freeman, Douglas Southall

Condition: See description


New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1942. Hardcover. Three volume set. Numerous photographs, illustrations, and maps, including one folding. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1942-44. Later printings. Sweeping narrative history of the Army of Northern Virginia under Robert E. Lee, rendered through multiple biographies of his key generals, including such diverse personalities as Lieutenant Generals Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, James Longstreet, Ambrose Hill, Richard Ewell, Jeb Stuart, Jubal Early, John Bell Hood, George E. Pickett, etc. Arguably Freeman's most popular work, Lee's Lieutenants was written between his monumental, multi-volume Pulitzer Prize-winning biographies of Robert E. Lee (1935) and George Washington (1957). Original black cloth bindings, with gilt stamping. The dust jackets of the first two volumes are price-clipped and rather shelfworn. The third volume lacks a dust jacket. Some general minor fading and wear along the extremities of the publisher's slipcase; otherwise very good.
